Same with suse-prime on Tumbleweed for me. Bumblebeework up to
kernel 4.16.5 . Any help available ? Uli

Welcome! There are not that many Optimus-Users on this list. ...
But in order to get a usable system i have to switch of
"composite" in KDE otherwise mouse and keyboard input show
unacceptable delays.


I'm using Tumbleweed and Bumblebee and it kinda work. KDE Plasma
composition is "on" and working well on Intel GPU. What is your
meaning of "No support"? What is expected to have?

When i wrote the initial mail bumblebee didn't work at all on my
system. Later i found the bug report i mentioned. Now i can start up
my system without problems and use KDE but i have to switch off
composite otherwise the system is quite unresponsive.

openSUSE has no official suse-prime, only Bumblebee. I'm trying to
get nvidia-xrun working, I managed to get it working with OpenGL
(in my home repo), but still no so lucky with Vulkan.

I'm not familiar with NVIDIA Optimus.

The UEFI in my Laptop does not allow to switch of the NVIDIA card. One
can only use the NVIDIA card (no Intel graphics) or something that is
called "MSHYBRID".

The use of the NVIDIA card drains the battery within one hour. So i
looked for a way to use only the Intel graphics and found bumblebee.

I know nothing about

nvidia-xrun or Vulkan or SUSE-prime

Would one of those be the better choice if i only want to use the
Intel graphics? If so, which one is best to use and how do i use it?
